What's New: Initiative for Democratic Socialism (Slovenia)
| February 4, 2015
Dear friends and supporters, 2014 was a landmark in the development of the Initiative for Democratic Socialism. A year after a series of popular uprisings against austerity measures came to a close we decided that it was time to establish a new and explicitly socialist party. Since its founding congress on March 8th 2014, we have participated in three different elections that presented a real strain and a new challenge for both the organisation, as well as the newly established United Left coalition.
What's New: Why Can't Public Transit Be Free?
by Joe Pinsker | February 4, 2015
About 500 subway riders in Stockholm have an ingenious scheme to avoid paying fares. The group calls itself Planka, and they've banded together because getting caught free-riding comes with a steep $120 penalty. Here's how it works: each member pays about $12 in monthly dues, and the resulting pool of cash more than covers any fines members incur.

In SFL v. Saskatchewan, the SCC turned that judicial philosophy on its head and ruled that workers do have collective rights that cannot be easily overturned by government. This represented a historical reversal and expanded the collective provisions of freedom of association in the Charter.
Bullet #1076: Seizing the Opportunity to Fight Austerity
An Interview with Alexis Tsipras | February 3, 2015
The effects of the crisis on Greek society have been truly devastating. It comes as no surprise that there have been major changes in the political scene. Syriza has always offered a detailed analysis of the crisis and the underlying causes. While the mainstream parties led people on -- rather brazenly, I might add -- we were vehement that austerity would have severe negative consequences and lead to recession; these policies simply weren't sustainable.

What's New: For Revolution
by Zillah Eisenstein | February 2, 2015
Revolutionary imagination is the most dangerous thing any of us have to offer. Hopefully there are new revolutionary imaginations happening just now in the U.S. against the present specific racist/imperial/tortuous moment. This consciousness has been forming since long before the brutal murder of Emmett Till, 1955. Now, recent murders by militarized police have sparked a new anti-racist justice movement from Ferguson, Missouri, to Palestinian struggles in Gaza, to Staten Island, New York, and back. As a white anti-racist feminist I want to work with and alongside these new and insurgent activists.
Bullet #1075: The Monster of Soma Rears Its Head
by Sungur Savran | February 1, 2015
The AKP government in Turkey and, in particular, its undisputed leader, Tayyip Erdogan, president of the republic since last August, are usually remembered by the international public for their brazen violation of political and civil rights, their brutality in dealing with the Gezi revolt of June-September 2013, their unabashed support for the sectarian war waged against the Syrian regime by the various offshoots of the Al Qaeda movement and their growing tendency to impose Islamic rules on public life in Turkey, safely the most secular country in the Muslim world.

|Forum: TRANSITogether: Building A Movement|
The election of John Tory creates new openings and challenges for the public transit movement in Toronto, as does the large vote for Ford in the city’s inner suburban areas. How are we to understand this moment, and how do we move forward as a transit movement? These are some of the questions posed at this forum. Invited is any one interested in public transit as well as organizations seeking to build, expand and defend the public transit movement. The forum will include speakers, small group discussions and a summary session.
